Browns WR’s Corey Coleman and Andrew Hawkins to Sit vs Packers

Corey Coleman

The Browns are a day away from their first preseason game of 2016, and a couple of their wide outs won’t be out there, including rookie first-round pick Corey Coleman.

Coleman will sit with a hammy, as reported by Cleveland.com. Also on the shelf will be Andrew Hawkins, who is also nursing a hamstring tweak.

Robert Griffin III will be missing a few of his top guns in his preseason debut in Green Bay on Friday night.

Rookie receiver Corey Coleman, who tweaked a hamstring in the intrasquad scrimmage that he owned last Friday, will sit out the game, as will Andrew Hawkins, the Browns’ top slot receiver candidate.

Receiver Terrelle Pryor, who’s been starting opposite Coleman, felt some fatigue in his right calf muscle on Wednesday while practicing on the rain-soaked fields. Coach Hue Jackson pulled him out practice and sent him to the see trainer, who wrapped the calf in ice for about 20 minutes.

“I think Terrelle will be fine,” said Jackson. “He was practicing and I made a decision to take him out. He wanted to stay out there.”

Here’s hoping that Pryor doesn’t go out and get hurt, as that would be a terrible thing to lose one of the new Browns starting wide outs in a meaningless preseason game.

    It’ll be interesting to see how much the Browns improve over a disastrous 2015 season.
